    Summary

    It's a tradition that had been born after a particularly awful job in northern Sweden; a simple affirmation that there were good things in the world even when they were up to their necks in the absolute worst it had to offer.

    ---

    When the fighting is over and the mission has ended the family takes some time to take care of themselves and each other.

    Summary

    "Nile had heard of them before--extractors. They went into dreams and tried to extract information. Andy introduced them to her as Booker, Joe, and Quynh. She began explaining that Booker was the forger--an identity thief who was able to change the dreamer’s perception of him. Quynh was Andy’s right hand woman, a manager of sorts who made Andy’s big goals become reality. That left Joe. Their...well his role wasn’t exactly clear, but he used to be an architect. Which is what Nile was supposed to be."

    Based heavily on the movie Inception (2010), which you don't necessarily need to see for this fic to make sense. Nile is hired as a dream architect to replace Joe, who's been fucking up missions due to his grief for Nicky, who has died permanently but keeps showing up in dreams.

    Summary

    The line ran three times before someone answered, and Nile had to steady herself against the porch railing, the flip phone shaking in her hand.

    “Hello?” The woman on the other end said.

    Hi Mom, Nile thought, but didn’t say.

    “Hi,” she forced a false cheer into her voice. “I’m Megan with Northeast Solar. I was wondering if you would be interested in switching your home to solar energy.”

    Summary

    Nile dreams of a man drowning, over and over and over.

    And- between every other curveball thrown her way in the last 72 hours- Nile realizes she has to draw the line somewhere between passively accepting it and doing something about it.

    Summary

    “Calm down,” said Andromache. “This is a social visit. We’re both Weyrwomen here now; we should try to be friends. I was going to bring Quỳnh too, but she thought that might be a bit much.”

    Summary

    “Hope” is the thing with feathers -
    That perches in the soul -
    And sings the tune without the words -
    And never stops - at all -

    And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
    And sore must be the storm -
    That could abash the little Bird
    That kept so many warm -

    I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
    And on the strangest Sea -
    Yet - never - in Extremity,
    It asked a crumb - of me.

    Emily Dickinson, "Hope" is the thing with feathers -

    Summary

    Nile's already died twice today, been abducted by an Amazon, labelled AWOL, is apparently immortal(!?), and now the worst bit of all is she has to put up with these two little shits.

    Summary

    Jerusalem, 1104: Five years after the First Crusade has captured the city for Christendom, the uneasy new Latin Kingdom is divided by political intrigue both mortal and magical, especially when whispers arise that the fabled -- and terrifyingly powerful -- Ring of Solomon might have been found. While a horde of supernatural creatures compete and cut throats in their plans to retrieve it at all costs, a young human woman named Nile finds herself at the center of a dangerous, exciting, and magical adventure with a mysterious Italian vampire and a clever Egyptian djinn. As she discovers secrets she's never known and kingdoms she's never dreamed, Nile comes to realize that she -- and her companions -- may be the key to an age-old mystery, and part of something much larger than any of them can imagine.

    (If only those two idiots could take their eyes off each other and stop arguing long enough to help.)

    Summary

    “And it’s enough?” Nile asks. “It’s enough to keep you going?”

    “It’s enough to make me love this world and so many of the people in it,” Joe says, soft but sure. “We can’t change evil. We can only try to end each day having come out on top of it, and hopefully having helped others do the same. It may never go away, but other, better things aren’t ever going away either. That’s so much more important. Vital. That’s what I’d want you to remember, if you can.”
     

    When you have a seemingly infinite number of days ahead of you, some will turn out well and some won't. And sometimes you can’t tell which is which until the day is over. Nile gets to experience the whole gamut with each of her new family members while finding her way through this weird, wonderful immortal life.

    Summary

    Nile looked up at him, her eyes glistening.

    “Did you have a family?” she wondered.

    Joe pursed his lips, looking right into Nile’s eyes. He gave her a small smile and a small pat. “Of course. Like every human who ever walked the earth, I had a family. Though I was lucky they loved me as much as yours did.”

    Nile and Joe have a heart to heart about families.

    Summary

    There are times when Nicky and Joe thoroughly enjoy it if the other is the subject of appreciative gazes — after all, it's only natural that such beauty would attract stares. The only dispute is which of them is more deserving of these praises.

    Or, in other words, Nicky and Joe being ridiculously sappy when the other gets hit on or stared at, while Nile learns that jealously is not a thing for these two.

    (Takes place in a somewhat fluffy and idyllic post-canon universe.)

    Summary

    After Dad died, her pastor had said that grief was natural. That it would hurt for a while, and then it would become waves, washing over you until they petered out to a faint trickle. Grief only got further away, eventually leveling out— until another tide swept in. It never healed, grief wasn’t meant to heal.

    Her pastor said that that was where God’s guidance came in. That He would help ease Nile’s heart, and remember her Dad— his smile, his laugh, the sound of Marvin Gaye through the staticky radio, dancing with Mom on a random Tuesday before he shipped out again.

    She still remembered those things, so clearly.

    Nile paused in the street, taking a deep breath of the sea salt on the breeze. Now her whole life was something she grieved, it would get further away. What if she didn’t want it to fade? She'd rather miss them all forever than forget them. Like Andy had

    Summary

    Logically, she knew - in some faint recess of her overactive imagination - she wouldn’t die but her anxiety had her dredging up faint flashes of Quynh screaming and pounding against the confinements of her watery grave.

    Or; Nile is not having a very happy-shiny day at the moment.

    Summary

    "Oh nice. What's the blog about?" Nile locks her phone again and turns towards Joe, who is now looking at her curiously.
    "It's mostly poetry and short stories. A few sketches and illustrations here and there, sometimes photos."

    OR

    Nile's favourite blog updates (finally).

    Summary

    Sequel to The Nightmare Club.

    Nile didn't think she could belong to a weirder, more selective group then the Old Guard. But being immortal doesn't mean you stop having nightmares.

    When that happens, the Nightmare Club meets to play cards.

    “Have you ever been to a concert?”

    Joe thought it might be a joke at first, but when Nile stared at him expectantly, he realized she was serious.

    Summary

    “Ok, I have to ask.”

    “Please do.”

    “Why are you reading a book about the First Crusade?”

    “Because I want to know what happened. Why else do people read history books?”

    “But you were there.”

    Nicky shrugged. “Joe was at the Argentina vs England game in 1986, but he got stuck in the toilet and missed Maradona’s goal.”

    Nile stared at him. “What?”

     Nile gets to know Joe and Nicky a little better.
